PREFACE. 

The greater part of the information as to the earlj^ posterity of Isaac Willey 
in the following pages, was derived from copies of " The Records of the town 
of East Haddam, the records of the several churches there ; the inscriptions in 
the several cemeteries ; from various private and family records ; and the rec- 
ords of the neighboring towns and churches," taken between 1856 and 1866 by 
D. Williams Patterson, Esq., of Il^ewark Valley, N. Y. ; and revised by him for 
me in 1884 ; supplemented by further investigations made by him in Connecticut 
at my instance, in the winter of 1885. For his kindness and liberality in this 
matter, and for the generous aid and advice he has so freely given me at all 
times, I desire here to express my heartiest thanks. To the knowledge thus 
obtained I have added that procured by myself from family records, from 
printed books, and from correspondence with many ijersons, to all of whom, 
too numerous to mention individually here, I beg to return my thanks for their 
kindness in answering my inquiries, and in aiding in the completeness of my 
work. 

The statistics on p. v of the Preliminary Remarks are slightly changed by 
additions made during the printing of the work. 

On page 1, line 6, for Edward read Andrew. 

On the day on which the proof of this Preface was read, the following addi- 
tions to the record were received from Mrs. Matilda W. Shepard, for which this 
is the only place, viz. : 
446b Silence,^ dau. of Willard E. and Martha (Benton) Stewart, (446,) b. in Sept. 

1887. 
456b Milton Austin,^ s. of Charles D. and Asenath M. (N'oble) Benton, (451,) b. 
May 2, 1888.

PRELIMINARY. 



Of persons named Willey tliere were in Kew England at the earliest period, 
according to Savage and other authorities : 

1. Isaac Willey, of Charlestown, Boston and New London, the subject of 
the following genealogy, and his children. 

2. Allen, who had wife Alice. They were admitted to the 1st ch. in Bos- 
ton, Nov. 2, 1634. The frequent recurrence of the name Allen in the Willey 
family suggests the query whether he may not have been the father of Isaac 
Willey.' 

3. Richard, who m. Eliza, dau. of Edward and Ruth Willis, and had dau. 
Ruth, b. Oct. 13, 1687. Boston Rec. p. 177. 

4. Alice, who m. Dec. 5, 1659, John Garretson. lb. p. 72, "Perhaps dau. 
of Isabel," says Savage, but of the latter there is no other mention. 

5. Abigail, dau. of Hannah Willey, bap. in Charlestown in 1687. G. R. 
xxvii, p. 276. 

6. Frances, who m. May 16, 1652, Joseph Howe. Boston Rec. p. 38. 

7. Thomas, Edward, and Richard Willey were in the Boston tax lists for 
1687-89. Edward came to Boston in 1682, and was a juror there in 1686. G. 
R. i, p. 139. He was brother-in-law to Rev. John Bailey, (Proc. Mass. Hist. 
Soc, X, p. 342,) and is mentioned in Drake's Hist, of Boston, p. 482, under date 
of 1686, as having " fled on account of persecution." See Dunton's Letters 
from N. E., p. 81. 

8. William Willee, servant of Thomas King, was one of the early settlers 
of " Old Norfolk," Mass. G. R. viii, p. 169. 

9. Thomas Willey, of Dover, N. H., and his children, where he was taxed 
in 1648. Their descendants settled in N. H. and Maine, and there is a tradition 
that their ancestor came from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Mention is made of them 
in numerous volumes of G. R., in N. H. Colonial Rec. 1, p. 308, ii, pp. 36, 37, 
V. pp. S8, 41, 48: N. H. Town Papers, xi, pp. 507, 570, vii, p. 50; Hamilton, 
Hist, of Rockingham and Stafford Cos., N. H., pp. 616, 780, 798, 799/ Samuel 
was a favorite name in that family. The Willey s of Conway, N. H., probably 
belonged to this family, among whom were Samuel Willey, Jr., who perished 
in the slide in the Notch, Aug. 28, 1826, (G. R. xxx, p. 468,) and his brother. 
Rev. Benjamin Glazier Willey, who wrote "Incidents in White Mountain His- 
tory," of whom see notice in Cong. Quarterly, 1867, p. 300. 

10. The John Wiley, or Willey, mentioned by Savage, iv, p. 463, and G. R. 
ii, p. 48, as an early settler of Reading, Mass., was probably not a Willey. 
Was he the John Willey of Reading, who settled in Colchester, Conn.? See 
Earned, Hist, of Windham Co., Conn., i, p. 307, seq. 

11. John Willey m. in Watertown, Mass., Jan. 21, 1644, Elizabetli 
Clough. (Bond, Watertown Genealogies, p. 162.) The same, p. 967, says tliat 



II PRELIMINAEY. 

March 13, 1710-11, and again in 1715, objection was made to the settlement of 
Elizabeth Willey, from Boston, perhaps a descendant of his. 

12. David Willey, a soldier of the Eevolution, mentioned in Hollister's 
Hist, of Pawlet, Vt., p. 21, is said in Vt. Hist. Gaz. iii, p. 872, to have been a 
soldier in the French and Indian war, and one of the early settlers of Pawlet. 

13. Capt. John Wiley, or Willey, was capt. in the 8th Mass. Bay Reg't in 
1775. Hamersly, Army Register. He is referred to in records in the office of 
the Sec. of the State, in Boston, vol. 146, pp. 138, 238, 241, 243, having been 
recommended by some and objected to by others, as an officer in the Revolu- 
tion. Capt. John Wiley, of Col. Tinkham's Mass. Reg't, had a claim of 
$332.68, which was formally reported on in 1792. U. S. State Papers, (claims) 
1834, p. 392. Capt. John Wylie m. in 1787, Elizabeth, dau. of Jacob and Eliza- 
beth (Hall) Tappan. G. R. xxxiv, p. 53. 

14. Jonathan Willee, of Lynn, Mass., m. Tamzen, dau. of Phineas and 
Tamzen (Hall) Upham, of Maiden, Mass. Marriage intentions pub. June 17, 
1750. G. R. vii, p. 241 ; xxiii, p. 30. 

15. Sally, w. of John Willey, and 2 ch., were buried in Maiden, Mass., in 
1803. G. R. ix, p. 243. 

16. Sarah Willey m. in Stoneham, Mass., June 1, 1773, Caleb, s. of Caleb 
and Sarah (Richardson) Richardson. Richardson Gen. p. 258. 

17. Sukey, dau. of James Willey, of Stoneham, Mass., m. April 6, 1813, 
Stephen, s. of Jerusha (Richardson) Locke, lb. p. 254. 

18. Ephraim Willey, of Boston, Mass., m. Mary, dau. of Jonathan and 
Mary (Bryant) Noble, of Boston, who was b. Feb. 14, 1794. Noble Gen. p. 741. 

19. Saul Willey, of Hartford, Conn., is mentioned in a foot note in God- 
win's Notes, p. 49, under date of 1679. 

20. Robert Willey, an emigrant from Ireland, settled in Antrim, N. H., as 
early as 1784, and m. probably as 2d w., Nabby Campbell, of New Boston, N. 
II., Jan. 15, 1785. " It is believed his descendants are living in Rochester, Vt." 
Hist, of Antrim, p. 770. 

There are no records to show what relationship, if any, existed between the 
early Willeys of Boston and its vicinity, or to trace their descendants. The 
Campton Willeys knew those of Conway, and thought there was a relationship, 
but no proof of it has been found. 

21. Hon. Waitman T. Willey, of Morgantown, W. Va., (see Lanman, Biog. 
Annals, Poore, Cong. Directory, Hist, of Preston Co., W. Va., by S. T. Wiley, 
Kingwood, W. Va., 1882, ch. viii,) writes : " My father William was b. in Del- 
aware in 1767. My grandfather William moved from Delaware to this country 
when m}^ father was about 13 years old. Branches of the family emigrated to 
N. Carolina, and also to Ohio early in its settlement. I have never been able 
to ascertain any connection between the N. E. Willeys and us; but from the 
best information I can get my ancestors came directly to Delaware from Eng- 
land." John A. Willey, of Zanesville, Ohio, the names of whose ch. by his 
wife Nancy (Chapman) are given in the Chapman Gen. p. 56, was s.of John 

and (Griffiths) Willey, who went there with his parents from West Va. 

in 1807 and d. in 1865, and she, who was of Welsh descent, and came from Del- 
aware, in 1861. 

22. For persons whose names have been changed to or from Willey, see 



PRELIMINARY. Ill 

" List of Persons whose Names have been changed in Massachusetts," published 
by order of the Legislature, 1885. 

23. iVs to the origin and etj^mology of the name, thefe have been various 
conjectures. According to Lower, English Surnames, Willey means " favor- 
able ones," which seems a mere guess based on a local meaning. In Edmunds, 
Traces of the History of the Names of Places, we read : " Willey, Willy, Wilye, 
from the Wil, W}^, or Wilts tribe, whose setu or tribe station gave name to the 
district of Wilraduocyie, now Wiltshire: ex., the river Wilen, now Willey, 
Wilton, &c." According to Hoare, Hist, of Ancient Wiltshire, the name is 
said to be derived from the Celtic word Gwy, meaning water. In Pearson's 
Historical maps of England, Willey is given as Anglo-Saxon for Wiley. In 
that language Wyl means a spring. But Arthur, Hist, of Family Names, N. Y. 
1857, p. 267, says Wilts is from Welsh gwylt^ meaning a wild forest, a desert. 
Mr. Edward Whitaker, in an article on the name Willey in Good Words, quoted 
in the Librarj'^ Magazine, n. s. vol. v. p. 268, derives the name, in common with 
other names commencing with Wil, from that of William the Conqueror, whose 
name, he says, originated more surnames than any other baptismal appelation, 
and that names derived from it stand third in point of commonness among the 
English cognomina, being excelled only by Smith and Jones. But the correct- 
ness of this derivation, as applied to all the names cited by him, is open to dis- 
pute. Tn the anonymous work. The Norman People and their Descendants, 
London, 1874, which is an attempt to prove that there is a larger Norman ele- 
ment among the English people than is generally supposed, the author on p. 78 
says, "Labials and other letters are frequently interchanged," and gives as one 
of the examples " Willy — Velly "; and on p. 448, " Willey — Petrus and Philip de 
Velly and the fief of Normandy, t. Philip Augustus [1165.] Adam, John Willey, 
Eng. c. 1272." The authorities cited by him, Mem. of the Antiquarian Soc. of 
Normandy, v, and Rotuli Hundredorum, English Records Publication, have 
not been within my reach. There are in France the modern names Villey, 
Villy, and Willy, the last being the surname of one of the Rothschilds; and in 
German the name Wille ; and a gentleman named Willey, in Cincinnati, says 
his familj^ is of German origin. In " Old Sports and Sportsmen ; or, the Willey 
Country," London 1873, p. 70, we read : " The name is said to be of Saxon ori- 
gin ; and in wattle and dab and wicker-work times, when an osier-bed was prob- 
ably equal in value to a vineyard, the place might have been, as the word seems 
to suggest, one where willows grew, seeing that various osiers, esteemed by 
basket-makers, coopers and turners, still flourish along the stream winding- 
past it to the Severn." This corresponds with the conjecture of Allen Willey 
(No. 212.) Willow is in Saxon welig. Skeat, Etymological Diet., says, "in 
provincial English, Willy means not only a willow, but a wicker basket," the 
Aryan root being ^ui, meaning to bind, to weave. HalliwelPs Diet, of Archaic 
and provincial words gives the following: "Willey, 1, a Withy, North; 2, a 
child's nightgown, Cumb." " Willy, 1, favorable, A. S. ; 2, a large wicker 
basket. South. ; 3, a bull. Isle of Wight." Barnes, (the Dorsetshire poet,) in 
" Early England and the Saxon English," says : " Wiltshire is so-called from 
Wilton, its old chief town on the River Wiley. Wiley, in British Gwillwy^ or in 
the soft form Willwy^ means the straggling (stream) , whence Wily, and then 
Wilitun^ or Wilton, and lastly Wiltonscire, or Wiltshire." Among so many 
etymologies and conjectures, it is difficult to decide what was the origin of the 



IV PRELIMINARY. 

personal name Willey, and it would require more means of historical research 
than are within my reach to determine. The name, in its origin, probably goes 
farther back than any of the researches of the etymologists have extended. 

The " Willey country " is in Shropshire, Eng., along the banks of the Severn, 
and includes the present parish of Willey. • After the conquest, according to 
the authority above cited, " it fell to the lot of a Norman named Turold. 
Domesday book says : "• The same Turold holds Willey, and Hun wit, [the 
Saxon occupier,] of him." At the death of the latter the manor passed to a 
family which took its name from the place, and considerable additions resulted 
from the marriage of one, Warner de Williley, with the heiress of Roger Fitz 
Odo, of Kenley." It is now the property of Lord Forester, and the estate is 
called Willey Park. In the British Gazeteer, Willey is the name of a hundi-ed 
in Bedfordshire, embracing 18 parishes, and of parishes or hamlets in Devon, 
Hereford, Shropshire and Warwickshire, in which last there is an ancient 
church called Willey church. (N. & Q., Dec. 10, 1885.) The name of the 
parish in Wiltshire is in the Gazeteer given as Wylye or Wiley. " Willey-hove" 
is the name of a remarkable barrow, about 10 miles from Bidlington, York- 
shire. (Hand-book of Yorkshire.) Tlie word in the terms " Willey-house," 
&c., used in the manufacture of wool in Yorkshire, is said to be a corruption 
of vnnnow. (N. &> Q., Nov. 20, 1886.) The personal name occurs in Durham, 
Northumberland, Yorkshire, Herts, (as early as 1398), in Plymouth (15G8), in 
Somersetshire, and in an early Bristol Will. It has been a common one in 
England to the present time. 

24. The fullest account of any English Willeys is given in Surtees, Hist, of 
Durham, vol. ii, p. 74, the family of John Willey of Heburne, Northumber- 
land. He had a s. John, whose date is 1366, and whose son John was a citizen 
of London, 12 Hen. iv, (1411,) whose s. John in 1445 took his maternal name 
Heyworth, and released all his right in his father's lands to his cousins Richard 
and John W^illey. Richard, the other s. of the 2d John, had a s. John, wiio 
had a son in 1476. Another family, given in vol iv, p. 5, was Willey of Haugh- 
ton-le-side, Durham. His arms were, " Per pale Erminois and Gules, three 
chevrons countercharged. Crest, out of a crown Gules, a reindeer's head, 
Erminois, attired argent, mantled Gules, doubled Argent." This ci-est was con- 
firmed by Sir Richard St. George, Norroy, May 18, 1615. The ancestor, 

Willie of Houghton-le-side, had s. Ralph, who had s. John, who had s. Ralph 
of Croft, gent., 1650, who paid a composition of £1, 13, 4, for his estate, as a 
loyalist. The Visitations of these counties in the Harleian MSS., British Mu- 
seum, Nos. 1153, 1448, 1540, 1554, give the same genealogies. 

There was a tradition in two branches of the descendants of Isaac Willey, 
that their ancestor came from Wiltshire, (see No. 212,) and a similar tradition 
was obtained in Conn, by Ogden M. Willey in 1837. The name W^ilts appears 
to have been corrupted into Wales, and hence some of the family have sup- 
posed that they were of Welsh extraction. The fact that these traditions as- 
cribed the origin of the name to the River Willey in Wilts, gives some color to 
this tradition ; but the name has not been found by me in that county. There 
was a singular tradition that the family was descended from a W^elsh pi-ince, 
or, according to another version, that one of its ancestors married a daughter 
of Charles II, (see No. 925.) For the origin of this tradition it is now impos- 
sible to account, and it remains for future research to ascertain who were the 



PEELIMINARY. V 

ancestors of Isaac Willej^ of Ne\v^ London. All that can be said at present is 
that he emigrated to this country before 1640, but whether he married here or 
in the old country is unknown. 

25. Ten generations are included in the following pages ; and there is one 
descendant in the female line in the 11th generation. Of persons bearing the 
name Willey, there are 568 males and 560 females, (besides two or three whose 
sex is not given) ; in all, 1128. In the 1st generation, 1 male ; in the 2d, 3 males, 
4 females; in the 3d, 6 males, 4 females; in the 4th, 18 males, 18 females; in 
the 5th, 36 males, 39 females ; in the 6th, 87 males, 85 females ; in the 7th, 114 
males, 104 females ; in the 8th, 159 males, 158 females ; in the 9th, 110 males, 91 
females ; in the 10th, 22 males, 34 females. In regard to age, there were in the 
2d generation 1 over 70; in the 3d, 2 over 80; in the 4th, 3 over 70 and 2 over 
80 ; in the 5th, 18 over 70, 13 over 80, and 4 over 90 ; in the 6th, 30 over 70, 23 
over 80, and 6 over 90 ; in the 7th, 44 over 70, 15 over 80, 4 over 90, and one (No. 
766) who lived to 104. There are living in the 7th generation 18 who are over 70 
and 7 who are over 80. In the 8th generation there are 6 over 70, of whom 4 
are living. Families of from 7 to 12 children were not infrequent. The largest 
family had 17 children. The number of descendants not bearing the name 
Willey is 1059. A perusal of the record will show that the family has been 
well and creditably represented in the learned professions, especially the min- 
istry, and that no crime attaches to any member of it. It has borne its share 
in military service, from before the Revolution to the civil war. The statistics 
of ages are of course imperfect, owing to deficiencies in dates, but the stock 
appears to be one that is quite tenacious of life. 

The name Willey appears in some of the English lists of persons having 
claims to money or other property. But there is not the slightest reason to 
suppose that any person in this country, of the stock of Isaac Willey, could 
establish any right to property in England. 

In the following Genealogy, the numbers at the left are the consecutive 
numbers of the individuals. Those in the centre refer back to the ancestor; 
and those to the right, forward to the descendants of the individual opposite 
whom they are placed. The descendants of males follow one another in the 
order of their ancestors ; but those of a female are all placed with her under 
the generation to which she belongs. 

I have noticed, as a trifling coincidence, that the 19th day of the month occurs 
oftener than any other, and the 19th of July more frequently than any other 
single date.

POSTERITY 



OF 



ISAAC WILLEY, 



OF 



NEW LONDON, CONN. 



First Generation. 



1 ISAAC WILLEYi [2 

was of Boston, Mass., as early as 1640, and removed to Charles- 
town, Mass., before 1644. All that is known about him there are 
the records of his children given by Savage and in the Boston 
Record of births, &c. He had wife Joanna, who died in New 
London, Conn., where he m. after 1670 Anna, widow of Edward 
Lester, (see No. 2.) She died in 1692. In 1645 he went with 
John Winthrop, Jr., to New London. What is known about him 
there is given in Miss Caulkins's History of N. L. Her notice is 
as follows, (p. 310) : 

" Isaac Willey^ died about 1685. 

" Willey's houselot was on Mill brook, at the base of Post Hill. He was an 
agriculturist, and soon removed to a farm at the head of isTahantic River, w^hich 
was confirmed to ' old Goodman Willie ' in 1664. It is probable that both he 
and his wife Joanna had passed the bounds of middle age, and that all their 
children were born before they came to the banks of the Pequot. Isaac Willey, 
Jr., was a married man at the time of his death in 1662. John Willey was one 
who wrought on the mill-dam in 1657; Abraham had married and settled in 
Haddara before his father's decease. No other sons are known. Hannah, wife 
of Peter Blatchford, is the only daughter expressly named as such, but infer- 
ential testimony leads us to enroll among the members of this family Joanna, 
wife of Robert Hempstead, and afterward of Andrew Lester ; Mary, wife of 
Samuel Tubbs ; and Sarah, wife of John Terrall. 

" Isaac Willey married second, after 1670, Anna, relict of Aitdrew Lester, 
who survived him. The Willey farm w^as sold to Abel Moore and Chr. Chris- 
tophers. John Willey married in 1670 Miriam, daughter of Miles Moore. He 
lived beyond the head of Nahantic, and when the bounds between New London 
and Lyme were determined, his farm was split by the line, leaving twenty 
acres, on which stood his house, in New London. 

''Abraham Willey, the ancestor of the Haddam famil}^, married Elizabeth, 
daughter of Thomas Mortimer, of New London." 

In a note. Miss Caulkins says he wrote his name Isark Willey. She was, how- 
ever, misinformed as to Abraham being the ancestor of the Haddam family. 

From the authorities cited by Miss Caulkins we learn that in 1645 Isaac Willey 
and John Stebbins mowed the meadows of the Upper Mamacook. At a meet- 
ing held Feb. 25, 1647, he was chosen, with John Winthrop, Robert Hempsteed, 
Samuel Lothroup and Thomas Minor, " to act in all Toune affaires; " and at the 



Z FIRST GENERATION. 

same meeting he was granted "to have a planting' lot at the other side of the 
cove, near Mr. deane winthrops lot." The house lots originally numbered 38, 
but the number was reduced to 36. The first grantee was John Winthrop, Esq., 
and Isaac Willey was the fifth after him, " his homestead lying north west of 
Mr. Winthrop's on the upper part of what are now Williams street and Main 
street." His name occurs as one of sixteen who had cattle marks before 1650. 
At a General Court in May, 1649, " certain individuals at Pequot," viz., Robert 
Bedell, Gary Latham and Isaac Willey, charged with resisting a constable and 
letting go an Indian committed to their charge, were summoned to appear at 
Hartford and answer for their conduct. Eeferring to rate bills of Sept. 20, 
1G57, Miss Gaulkins says: "After enumerating house and houselot, meadow, 
marsh and upland, the planter had from two to four cows; half a dozen calves, 
yearlings and two years old; a litter of swine and two or three sheep, or per- 
haps a share in two or three sheep. This was all the ratable property of even 
some of the oldest settlers, as Willey." About 1652, two necks of land, one of 
them called " a pyne neck," with a broad cove between them, east of Pequot 
Kiver, were granted to him, and sold by him to Amos Eichardson. The Na- 
hantic farm is described as " rounding the head of the river." His name is 15th 
in the list of 21 freemen in 1669. [Gonn. Golon. Rec, ii, p. 523.] Nov. 29, 
1669, the town appointed Wm. Hough, John Stebbins, Glement Minor and Isaac 
Willey " to lay out the King's highway between New London and the head of 
Niantick river." He appears to have been a participant in the affray in Aug. 
1671, arising out of the disputed lands between New London and Lyme, now 
East Lyme, as he was among those arraigned at Hartford, March 12, 1671-2, 
(Miss Gaulkins has it inadvertently 1661-2,) " for attempts by violence to drive 
Mr. Mathew Griswold and Lieut. Wm. Waller off their lands, and resistance to 
authority and assault." [Gonn. Golonial Rec, ii, p. 558.] He took probate of 
the will of his son-in-law, Thomas Hungerford, at Hartford, July 9, 1663. 
[Goodwin, p. 201.] 

In 1667, Good wife Willey was presented before the court " for not attending 
public worship and bringing her children thither," and fined 5 shillings. [Miss 
Gaulkins, p. 250.] 



SECOND GENERATION, 2-4. 



Second Generation. 



Children of ISAAC ^ [ 1 ] and Joanna Willey. 

2 1. JOANNA,^ birth not recorded. Miss Caulkins says that 
she was 2d w. of Robert Hempstead, who d. at N. L. in June, 
1655, after which she became the 2d w. of Andrew Lester. But 
Savage doubts the existence of such a dau. in the household of 
Willey, or of such a w. in that either of Hempstead or Lester. 

3 n. ISAAC, ^ bap. on his mothers right at Boston, Aug. 2, 
1640, [Boston Rec, p. 10] ; m. there June 8, 1660, Frances, dau. 
of Edward Burcham, of Lynn, [ib., p. 76.] They removed to 
N. L., where he d. in Aug. 1662, and his wid. m. (2d), in the 
same year, Clement Minor. She d. Jan. 6, 1672-3, and he d. in 
Oct. 1700. For his ancestry see Miss Caulkins, and Orcutt, Hist. 
of Wolcott, Conn., p. 521. 

Miss Caulkins, at p. 280, (not noted in the index,) saj's : " He was a young 
man, probably not lon<^ married. His inventory, though slender, contains a 
few articles not very common, viz., ' tynen pans, a tynen quart pot, cotton 
yarn,' &c., together with one so common as to be almost universal, — a dram cup^ 
which appears in neaiiy every inventory for a centur}^ or more after the settle- 
ment. He left no children." 

4 HI. HANNAH,^ bap. in Boston, March 6, 1641-2, [Boston 
Rec. p. 37] ; m. at N. L. as his 2d w., ab. 1658, Thomas Hunger- 
ford, of N. L. as early as 1657, who d. in 1663. Of his 3 ch., 
Thomas, Sarah and Hannah, (b. May 1, 1659, and who m. a Mr. 
Ross of tifeg Island,) the last was the dau. of this wife. She m. 
(2d), Peter Blatchford of N. L., and went with him to Haddam, 
where he d. Sept. 1, 1671. They had 3 ch., Peter, Hannah and 
eloanna. She m. (3d), in 1673, Samuel Spencer of Millington, 
where she d. ab. 1681, after which Spencer m. the wid. of her 
brother John Willey. [See Goodwin, p. 201., Mem. Hist, of 
Hartford Co., i, pp. 231, 247.]

2 ch., William and Mary, bap. May 7, 1671. 

6 y. MAEY,^ b. ab. 1648 ; m. Samuel Tubbs, who applied for 
permission to remain in N. L. in 1663. 

He and John Willey, (No. 7,) both deceased before 1701, were of the Conn, 
vohmteers in King Philip's war to whom were granted lands in Voluntown, 
Conn., in 1696, for their services. [ISTarragansett Hist. Eeg., 1882, p. 146.] He 
d. in 1696, and she was living in 1725, being then aged 77. They had 6 ch., (and 
perhaps others,) whose names are given by Savage, viz. : Mary, Bethia, both 
bap. in May, 1G71 ; Samuel, bap. in July, 1672; William, bap. in May, 1674; 
Dorcas, bap. March 2, 1689; and Joseph, bap. Sept. 3, 1696.

7 yi. J0HN,2b. atN. L.* ab. 1648; m. there, March 18, [9 

1668-69, Miriam, dau. of Miles and Isabel (Joyner) Moore. 

He was one of those who wrought at the mill-dam in 1651 . He lived beyond 
the Head of Nahantick, (see No. 1.) The land in Lyme was confirmed to him 
by the town Sept. 23, 1682, being described as follows : " At the head of Ne- 
hantuck River, twenty acres of upland be it more or less : bounded easterly 
with New London bounds, and every way else with the Commons, at the South 
East Corner at a white oak tree, at the North East Corner at a white oak tree 
being a little without the fence now standing, at the North West Corner by a 
Reed oake tree, at the South West Corner with a stake." The same land, with 
some in N. L., was sold Feb. 17, 1692-93, by John and Isaac Willej^, to Capt. 
Edward Palmer. They both subscribed by a mark, and were described as sons 
of John Willey, late of Haddam, deceased. Three purchases of land, made by 
Isaac and John Willey in 1692 and 1709 and later, from Amos and Samuel 
Tinker, in the N. W. part of Lyme, with a considerable tract adjoining in East 
Haddam, remained the home of the Willey family for nearly a century, until it 
had been divided among successive generations into very small parcels. The 
wives of Amos and Samuel Tinker were ch. of George Durant, of Middletown, 
Conn, in 1663, and of Lyme in 1686-7, and had inherited the land of him. He 
was the ancestor of Edward Durant, who m. Luciua Willey (No. 925.) 

John Willey d. at Haddam, May 2, 1688. The inventory of his estate, amount- 
ing to £169 13 06, was presented at Hartford, Nov. 6, 1689, by his widow, who 
was appointed to administer the estate, with Alexander Rollo and Thomas 
Hungerford to assist her and to oversee her and her children. She m. (2d) in 
1689, Samuel Spencer. 

8 yil. ABRAHAM,2b. at N. L. perhaps ab. 1650; m. [16 
Elizabeth, dau. of Thomas and Elizabeth Mortimer, of N. L. 
Miss Caulkins erroneously calls him the ancestor of the Haddam 
Willey s. Savage says he d. at Haddam in 1692, leaving widow 
Elizabeth and 3 children.

Third Generation, 



Children of JOHN^ [ 7 ] and Miriam (Moore) Willey. 

9 I. ISAAC,=^ b. at N. L. Jan. 18, 1670-71; bap. there [19 
Ap. 30, 1671 ; m. at Lyme, Conn., Dec. 14, 1697, Rose Bennet, 
and, as appears by a deed of York, Me., records, [G. H. xxxv, p. 
382,] (2d) Sarah, dau. of William Ashfell, late of North Yar-

They joined the eh. in Hadlyme May 18, 1752, when she was bap. and was 
called 72 years old. He d. at HL. June 19, 1754, according to his gravestone, 
while the ch. record says June 20, in his 83d year, which seems to be an exag- 
geration of his age. Sales of land to his son Allen in 1727, and to his son John 
in 1752, of his house lot, with house and 12 acres, are recorded. Grants of land 
were made to him in 1727 and 1750, when he was described as '• Serg't John 
Willey." Administration of his estate was granted, Aug. 6, 1754, to Joseph 
Willey. It amounted to £139 11, and it appeared that his sons had received 
their shares in his lifetime, and the right in the undivided land was distributed 
among the eight daughters.

and who accepted the trust Nov. 7, 1752. The inventory amounted 
to several hundred pounds. 

Sept. 23, 1739, he deeded to his son Samuel Willey land, with house, &c., in 
the north part of Lyme, which he had of Nathaniel Darrow. This land was 
sold by Samuel Willey, Feb. 20, 1743, to Zachariah Willey, for £73, and the 
latter sold to Samuel Willey, (date not given,) "for £30 in bills of credit, or 
£7 10 in lawful money, two and a half acres of land, being the northwest corner 
of that land which my honored father Isaac Willey gave me." [Lyme Land

He was admitted a freeman at Lyme, Sept. 11, 1753. He had 4i acres of 
land laid out in the 9th division of E. H., Feb. 9, 1749-50. He probably lived 
and d. in Lj^me, as the settlement of the estate does not appear in E. H. probate 
records. If in Lyme, the record was probably destroyed by the fire of the 
British in 1781. Darius Willey, of Lyme, as executor of his will, sold land in 
Lyme, Ap. 21, 1769, to Jonathan Warner, and by authority of an Act of the 
Assembly passed in June, 1769, to Abel Willey of E. H., Ap. 21, 1769. Widow 
Deliverance Willey exchanged Land in Lyme, Aug. 17, 1771, with her dau. De-

Dec. 8, 1745, at the same time as their two children. 

He d. before Dec. 3, 1751, aged ab. 35, when administration of his estate was 
granted to Joseph W-'illey and to his widow Rachel. The inventory amounted to 
£1526 4 8, and the estate was distributed among his children, Zachariah having 

a double portion as oldest son. His widow Rachel had ni. again with

Widow Willey, aged ^^. 

He is described in a deed of Jan. 23, 1727-28, as a miller, and bought land in 
Lyme, with a grist-mill and saw-mill thereon, June 5, 1724, of John Pelton, 
which, with 15i acres of land, he sold to his brother Allen Wille}^ for £200. 
The grist-mill is mentioned in a deed of Abel Willey to Zachariah Willey in 
1739. In his will, dated Xov. 11, 1743, and proved Dec. 26, 1743, he gave the 
saw-mill to his dau. Keziah, but if David would pay £40 he was to have the 
mill. His brother Allen was executor. The inventory amounted to £514 14 1^.

with, the first child of this 2d marilage, gives the date as June 3, 1753, while 
that of his baptism is given as Aug. 20, 1749, from which it would seem there 
was an error in the record of her death, and that it probably occurred Aug. 3, 
1746, and the 2d marriage was not later than March 3, 1748, and the first child 
was b. in 1749.

45 IV. Patience,^ (twin,) b. March 18, 1748; bap. as above; m. 

Wood of Lyme. 

But the birth of the 2d child should probably be placed in 1742 or 1743, and 
of the twins in 1746, and they were bap. four weeks after their mother's death.

with her husband David, joined the ch. at HL. before 1754, and 
who d. a widow March 10, 1788, aged 80, and so b. ab. 1708.

H. June 8, 1735. They moved to Westchester, Conn., where 3 
of their children d. before Dec. 8, 1745. Thence they removed 
to Middle H., where they joined the ch. Aug. 2, 1747. Various 
deeds of land in Colchester and Lyme, of Abel Willey of Col- 
chester, from 1737 to 1745, are of record. [See also G. E., viii, 
p. 367.]

was dated Nov. 23, 1796, and proved Feb. 16, 1797. The inven- 
tory amounted to £98 14 11. The legatees were Ezra his son and 
his wife, Martha Belding his dau., " Prude Bill" his dau., Jesse

60 lY. BARZILLAI,^ b. as above, Sept. 10, 1734; m. be- [155 
fore 1760 Joanna, dau. of John and Joanna Church. They were 
members of the ch. in HL. in 1761. He was living March 12, 
1771, when he deeded part of the estate of his deceased father to 
Abigail Tolman. 

The records of his descendants are derived from a record made by Barzillai, 
(i^o. 157,) sent me by John Wesley Willey, (Jso. 1367,) of Lawrence, Kansas, 
and from information furnished by Rev. C. H. McMillan, of Mt. Vernon, Ind., 
(N^o. 1352.) The information contained in these records is partlj^ incorrect, 
being based on an erroneous tradition that the English ancestor was one John 
Willey of Doncaster. But for this tradition there is not the slightest founda- 
tion, it being a mere guess, based on an anecdote in the Devizes Gazette, in 
which a curious compound relationship was shown to have arisen from the 
marriages of this John Willey; w^hile the dates and other statements prove be- 
yond a doubt that Barzillai was the brother of Darius, (No. 61.) Mr. McMilhm 
has taken much pains to obtain information concerning the recent branches of 
the family, and has kindly sent me all the information in his possession. 

61 Y. DARIUS,^ b. at L., May 3, 1737 ; m. in 1762 Mary, [ 165

Westchester, Conn., Ap. 10, 1743. [Holmes Gen., p. 54.]

nial, pp. 17, 115, and Willey Mem.] In that year he was ap- 
pointed one of a committee of the proprietors to lay out the land, 
give titles, &c., in which service he continued ten or twelve years, 
receiving four shillings a day when out surveying, and three shil- 
lings for other services. He enlisted in 1777. [N. H. Town Pa- 
pers, xii, 751.] He d. in Campton, March 5, 1829, aged 92, and 
she d. there March 19, 1819, aged 76. Three of his children were 
b. in HL. He and his wife were members of the church in HL., 
and of the Congregational ch. in Campton. 

For a full account of him and his descendants, see the Family Memorial of 
Darius Willey and Wife, with their children, by his grandchildren, San Fran- 
cisco, 1808, for a copy of which, illustrated with a photograph of the homestead 
in Campton, I am indebted to Rev. Austin Willey of Northfield, Minn. See also 
Proceedings of the Centennial Celebration of the Town of Campton, held Sept. 
12, 1867, Concord, N. H., 1868, at which the historical discourse was delivered 
by Rev. Isaac V/ille}'. Tolman Willey, Esq., of Boston, presided, and Diodate 
Willey and Rev. Austin Willey were two of the Vice-Presidents. All the pub- 
lished accounts of the settlement of Campton say that it was made by Gen. or 
Capt. Jabez Spencer as an original grantor. But according to N. II. Town 
Papers, xi, p. 248, the grant was made to Christopher Holmes and 63 others; 
and it appears certain that there w^as no Jabez Spencer of E. H. There was a 
Jared Spencer, b. there Nov. 5, 1762, who d. at E. Windsor, Conn., aged 44, on 
his return from N. H. The name of Christopher Holmes does not appear among 
the early settlers of C, and it is probable that Jared Spencer was the agent of 
the proprietors in conducting the settlement ; and the date of his death corre- 
sponds with that, 1762, given as the period of the first settlement. Hazen, Ply- 
mouth Centen. Disc, doubts the early date assigned for the settlement.

Aprifl, 1728. 

He joined the 1st ch. in E. H., Jan. 14, 1753, but changed his connection and 
was confirmed in St. Stephen's Prot. Epis. ch. in E. H., Nov. 21, 1794. He m. 
(2d), Rachel Church, widow of Hezekiah Mack, who had d. in Oct. 1755, at 
Lake George, in his 28th year. She d. July 10, 1801, in her 69th year, and was 
b. Sept. 5, 1732, dau. of John and Marj'- Church, and was perhaps the Racliel 
Wille}^ who joined the ch. at Millington, July 1, 1792, and the 1st ch. in July, 
179G. The recollection of Allen Willey [212] in regard to his family was at 
fault, as the names of the wife and ch. given by him are those of Benajah 
Willey [40.]

HL., Dec. 22, 1745 ; m. Mary Fuller, b. in Oct. 1730, and who 
d. in Aug. 1804. He removed to Lempster, N. H., and was town 
clerk in 1774, selectman in 1777, (N. H. Town Papers, xi, p. 
466,) and held some town office till 1803. He enlisted in Gen. 
Stark's brigade in 1777, and is said to have been at the battle of 
Bennington in that year. 

When at the point of death, one of his ch. said to him : " Father, you are dy- 
ing; how do you feel?" His reply was : " As if I was going into battle." He 
d. May 8, 1811. [Other Willeys of Lempster, mentioned in N. H. Town Papers, 
xiii, p. 502, were Nathan, Reuben, Benjamin, David, Charles, Allen, and Allen 
AVilley, Jr., who in 1789 signed a petition to have Goshen set off from Lemp- 
ster and adjacent towns.]

ch. lit Millington Dec. 13, 1788, and d. there May 5, 1807, aged 
82, according to her gravestone. 

He was appointed Capt. of the 12th "company or trainband," of the 12th 
Connecticut regiment, by commission dated Oct. 24, 1768, which is preserved in 
the family of Rufus Allen Willey, (Conn. Colon. Rec, xiii, p. 99,) and captain 
of the 1st company in the 4th battalion of troops raised by Conn, to reinforce 
the Continental army in K. Y. in 1776. (Hinman, Revolution, pp. 225, 226.) 
He marched with his company of 43 men from E. H. " for the relief of Boston 
in the Lexington campaign," under Gen. Joseph Spencer, in 1775, (ib., p. 21,) 
but as his name is not among the officers appointed in that year, (^ib., p. 165,) 
it may be that, as said by Allen Willey, he went as a volunteer. He is said to 
have been at the battle of Bunker Hill, but the published accounts of the battle 
do not mention his company as among those who took part in it. His name 
appears as member of a court martial at Roxbury, in the orderly book of Gen. 
Spencer, June 28, 1775, a fragment of which was in his possession, and is now in 
that of the writer, and was printed by him in Aug. 1887. In 1776 he was Capt. of a 
Co. in the 1st Conn, militia, commanded by Col. James Wadsworth. (Fowler, 
Hist, of Durham, p. 184.) He appears to have retired from the army before the 
close of the war, and to have resided on his farm in Millington. He is men- 
tioned in Allen Willey's notes, which see. He d. at M., Dec. 26, 1805, and his 
gravestone, in the little burying-ground on his farm there, says he was the first 
person buried in that burial-ground. His musket, with the date 1777, is in the 
possession of the family of Rufus Allen Willey, (No. 1578.)

dau. of Ephraim and Sarah (Beckwith) Fuller, who was probably 
bap. at Middle H. July 10, 1743. He is said by Allen Willey to 
have died suddenly of apoplexy in Feb. 1778. 

Administration of his estate was granted Ap. 21, 1781, to his wife Susanna. 
The inventory amounted to £748 8 4. Distribution was granted March 10, 1791, 
between the widow, who received £71 19 4, and Catrine, Candace, Ansael, Cla- 
rissa, Susannah, and Lydia Willey, each of whom received £9 11, except Ansel, 
who had £18 18. The notes of Ogden M. Willey say that his family had re- 
moved from E. H. before 1837. A record of his children is preserved by Mrs. 
Eraeline Clement, of Alexander, N. Y.

(4th), at Millington, Jan. 8, 1816, Abigail, widow of Joel Wil- 
ley, (No. 135,) who d. there in Feb. 1876, aged 75. 

He, then of Ludlow, Mass., a town adjoining Wilbraham, sold land in E. H., 
June 22, 1776, to Abraham Willey. The Wilbraham Centennial mentions Judah 
Willey in a list of soldiers who went out in the Bennington alarm, Sept. 24, 
1777, and Allen Willey says he settled in Barre, Vt., after which there is no 
further trace of him. About the number of his children there is much uncer- 
tainty. The Wilbraham records give the birth of Eeuben, Deborah, and Azu- 
bah, and Allen Willey mentions Judah, Israel, and Asa, and says Reuben was 
the youngest son, and that a number of sons and daughters were born to him 
in Ban-e. Besides these, the Wilbraham records give the marriages of Lucy, 
Lydia, and Betsey Willey, who are here assumed to have been children of Judah 
and Deborah Harvey. The same record says that Susannah, dau. of Thomas 
and Jerusha Willey, was b. March 6, 1785. Who were they?

who was probably bap. there Oct. 26, 1754, dau. of Nathaniel and 
Susannah Beckwith. He moved to Ira, N. Y., in 1804, and set- 
tled on lot No. 34, now owned by Heman Benton, a grandson. 
In Hough's N. Y. State Gazeteer, p. 196, where the name is mis- 
printed Benson, he is styled " Capt. Abraham Willey." He d. 
May 12, 1841, according to his gravestone in Ira; and she d. 
Nov. 10, 1835, aged 81. 

"There was," writes Mrs. Matilda W. Shepard, " in one of the rooms in his 
father's house in E. H. a staple in the floor, and to this, in former times, a chain 
had been attached, the other end of which M-as fastened round the ankle of a 
woman reputed to be a witch, and was just long enough to allow her to travel 
back and forth at a spinning-wheel, but in spite of all precautions she would 
slip the chain and get away, owing, I suppose, to the evil spirit in her. My 
grandmother used to tell how once, when she had been to see about some weav- 
ing, and was on her way home, (she was on horseback,) her horse t^ravelled 
uncommonly fast, and when she reached home she found an old woman, who 
had the reputation of being ' uncannj'^,'' waiting for her, which of course ac- 
counted for the horse's speed."

7, 1816, in his 76th year. The Millington Ch. Eec. says, "Pru- 
dence, wife of Ephraim Willey, d. Ap. 3, 1815, aged 69;" but 
Judah Cone's record says, "Aunt Patience Willey d. Ap. 3, 1815." 
Administration of his estate was granted March 4, 1816, to Eb- 
enezer Willey. The inventory amounted to $75.36, and distribu- 
tion to his children was decreed Jan. 9, 1818. The tradition in 
Vermont is that Ephraim^ and Enoch ^ were half brothers. Hence 
it is probable that Ephraim^ was twice married. 

103 VIII. GRACE,^ b. at E. II. , Oct. 6, 1742 ; m. there July 18,

106 IX. BARNABAS,^ b. at E. H. , Dec. 27, 1747 ; m. Mercy [ 473 
Harvey. A deed of Aug. 29, 1786, in which they are described 
as "Barnabas Willey and Massy his wife, of Walpole, N. H., 
yeoman and spinster," conveys land in E. H. for £16 to Ezra 
Harvey, 2d, of E. H., probably her heritage. From Walpole he 
followed some of his ch. to Waterville, Vt. , then known as "Colt's 
Gore," and lived mostlv with his son Abner. He d. ab. 1829,

becca, who d. in July, 1812, aged 80. "Eebecca Willey," 2d, had 
a s. John, b. Jan. 9, 1778. It is uncertain whether she was w. of 
Aaron or the dau. of Joseph ; but as no marriage of the latter is 
recorded, it seems preferable to consider him the s. of Aaron. 

109 XH. DIMMIS,Mi. at E. H., May 27, 1754; and d. there 
Nov. 9, 1836.

Fuller. He settled in Ludlow, Mass., where he was the 1st town 
clerk in 1774, and afterwards selectman and assessor. [Hist, of 
L., Springfield, 1875, pp. 8, 16.] An informant in Ogden says 
he was at one time a mariner. 

He appears to have lived in Springfield, Mass., March 14, 1775, when he and 
his wife, of S., deeded land in E. H. which had belonged to Capt. Ephraim 
Fuller, deceased, to Ephraim Fuller. He, with David Spencer and others, pur- 
chased land in Ogden, N. Y., in 1802, for $2 an acre, and he removed there in

Oct. 4, 1812, and d. Ap. 5, 1826, aged 82, according to the

150 11. JESSE. ^ Jesse Willey and Ehoda his wife were [597 
members of the ch. at HL. in 1772, and were dismissed thence to 
that at Campton, N. H., in Jan. 1781. 

The Campton Cent, says he went to C. in 1770, and had 8 ch. In the list of 

members of the ch. at C. we read " Deborah [ ] Spencer (Asa) Willey (Jesse), 

removed by death in 1823," (Blakely, p. 57); from which it would seem that he 
had m. (2d) Deborah, widow of Asa Spencer, who enlisted from C. in 1777, 
[N. H. Town Papers, xii, pp. 459, 605,] and, according to the Campt. Cent., p. 
17, died in the army. Deborah Willey joined the ch. at C, Ap. 3, 1800, (Campt. 
Cent.,) so that the 2d marriage w^as before that date. In the deed of the par- 
sonage lot in C, between 1817 and 1822, he is mentioned as " Jesse Willey, late 
of Campton, deceased," (Blakely, p. 19.) He removed to Derby, Vt., and ac- 
cording to his grandson, Eev. Charles Willey, d. before his birth in 1815.

Sixth Generation. 



Children of BARZILLAI-'^ [60] and Joanna (Church) Willey. 

155 I. NATHANIEL TOLMAN,^ bap. at HL., June 2, 1765, at 
five years old. 

156 II. JOANNA,® bap. as above, between 3 and 4 years old. 

157 III. BAEZILLAI,® b. June 10, 1764; bap. as above, [606 
"better than 1 year old"; m. Nov. 27, 1787, Elizabeth McCough, 
who was b. Oct. 9, 1765, and d. Jan. 18, 1843. 

At 14 he enlisted in the Revolutionary army at Hartland, Conn., and was sta- 
tioned at Fort Griswold. He reenlisted at 19, and was present at the surrender 
of Burgoyne. He was in the employ of Gen. Wadsworth two or three years, 
and the only time he lost was on training days. His future wife worked in the 
kitchen of the farm-house. After their marriage they moved into the " Black 
River country" in N. Y., a hundred miles from a settlement, where their cabin 
and its contents were burned, and he had to return for a supply of bread. In 
1797 he was licensed as a Methodist preacher, on Herkimer circuit; was ad- 
mitted on trial in 1799, and ordained deacon in 1801; was on Albany circuit in 
1803, and on Black River circuit in 1804. He was a very zealous preacher, and 
in one year received 400 persons into the church. He had a tin store in IST. Y., 
and exchanged his wares in Canada for furs ; but being defrauded hy a clerk 
and obliged to give up everything, he emigrated, and in 1810 went down the 
Ohio on a raft, and raised a crop of potatoes where Cincinnati now stands ; 
going down to the Falls he found the river low, which he interpreted as a warn- 
ing to go no further, and built a cabin near where Mrs. Zuloff's residence now 
stands, east of JefFersonville, Indiana. Thence he removed to Blue Lick, a few 
miles in the country, his horse drawing a barrel of salt and a few household 
goods on two poles attached to his sides. In the Winter of 1812-13 he built a 
fort for protection from the Indians, and had two U. S. soldiers stationed with 
him. He was a " shouting Methodist " both in church and at home, and a great 
friend of the missionary cause. Although a poor man with a large family, he 
contributed $100 a year for many years. The little home-made book, covered 
with brown paper, in which he kept his accounts, is still extant. The future 
Bishop Ames came to his house once in the interest of the cause, and after re- 
tiring heard the old man reprove the girl for throwing the w^aste tallow^ from 
the candle into the fire. He thought nothing was to be expected from such a 
person, and was much surprised at receiving $100 the next morning. When

returning from church one day with his wife on his horse behind him, they 
were fired on by a band of Indians who were pursuing a white man before 
them. He continued to preach till his death, May 22, 1851, and Avas buried in 
the Bovvery church graveyard, near Memphis, Indiana.

riet, dau. of Elijah Benedict, b. July 19, 1801, (Benedict Gen., p. 
81.) He died in Cayuga many years ago. 

Edwin A. Whitney, of Cayuga, says he came there from New Jersej^, and 
" was a close-mouthed person and a man of strict integrity, and was very much 
respected in the community, and still he had a great deal of the old Connecticut 
Presbyterian ideas about him. He belonged to the Presbyterian church of this 
place from the time he came here till his death." He left no children.

N. Y. Jan. 30, 1788, and Ap. 18, 1789, he conveyed lands in 
Lyme to Samuel Brooks. In a deed from Deliverance Willey, 
Ap. 9, 1783, he is described as her grandson.

Children of ALLEN ^ [81] and Mary (Fuller) Willey. 

212 I. ALLEN,' b. in Lempster, July 28, 1760; m. Nov. [772 
22, 1781, Chloe Frink, who was b. Dec. 28, 1760, and who d. 
Aug. 22, 1832. He settled in Goshen, N. H., and removed ab. 
1810 to West Bloomfield, N. Y., and after the death of his wife, 
to Bedford, near Cleveland, Ohio, residing with his daughter, Mrs. 
Willes, till his death, which occurred in Cleveland, Ap. 3, 1835. 
He enlisted in the alarm of June 29, 1777, but was in service only 
a few days. [N. H. Rev. Eec, ii, 35.] 

In 1834 he noted down his recollections as to the origin of the family and 
his near relatives. There are two copies of this document, one in the posses- 
sion of the family of his son Charles, and the other in that of his daughter 
Frances Willes. They are substantially alike, but have some unimportant vari- 
ations. Perhaps he had made two copies for dilferent members of his family, 
and the differences arose from failure of memory. This document is as follows : 

" As a source of amusement for the day, I thought I would look for the orig- 
inal of the name Willey. I find upon examination that it is the name of one of 
the principal rivers in Wales, Wiltshire Co., England, given to it, in all proba- 
bilit}^, on account of the many willows that grew on its banks. In the year 
1686, by reason of the many troubles and disputes that then existed, two 
brothers of the name of Willey sought a home in the New World. [The other 
copy says, "emigrated in the year 1607 or '8 to escape the tribulations of that 
important revolutionary era in the history of Britain."] It so happened that 



32 SIXTH GENERATION, 212. 

they embarked on board different vessels, one of which was wrecked in a storm 
and was never more heard of. The other came safely and landed at New Lon • 
don, in the State of Connecticut. John, (for that was his Christian name,) 
having a small property in money, w^as enabled to purchase a fine tract of land 
in the new colony, in a place called East Haddam, where in the course of a few 
years he became an opulent and thrifty farmer. He married an amiable woman, 
by whom he had ten children, seven sons and three daughters. Abel, John, 
Isaac, Allen, Joseph, Noah, Benjamin, [Benajah in 2d copy,] all lived to be 
settled and had families. The daughters' names I have forgotten. From these 
the race of Willey are descended. Now^ I will go a little into particulars, as far 
as they have come to my knowledge. The families of Abel, John, and Isaac, 
were small. A son of John named David [77] married a girl named Fuller. 
They had three children, John, David, and Abigail. John was a blacksmith, 
had a large family. I knew two of them, Calvin [517] and Asa [576]. Calvin 
settled in Tolland, was an eminent lawyer, and afterwards became a Senator in 
Congress from that State. Asa settled in Ellington, and was afterwards ap- 
pointed one of the Judges for the Co. of Hartford. David had no children. 
Abigail married a Markham, who removed to New Hampshire. He was the 
first inhabitant of Lempster. Thence moved to Ackworth, thence to Genesee 
Co., New York. A few months after their arrival there both died, leaving four 
sons, William, David, John, Arnold, and a number of daughters. William ac- 
cumulated a handsome property. 

Allen, [13], my grandfather, married Mary Richardson. They had ten chil- 
dren, eight of whom grew up, two having died in infancy. Their names were 
Allen, Mehitabel, Ann, John, Lemuel, Lydia, Judah, and Abraham. My uncle 
John [82] married a Comstock and settled in East Haddam, was a good farmer, 
and attended to his own business. He was often a selectman in that town, and 
commanded a volunteer company in the battle of Bunker Hill, and lived to a 
good old age. Lemuel [90] settled near him, married a fine w^oman, had a fine 
lot of children. Their names I have now forgotten, except that of Calvin. He 
settled in New Haven, Vermont, and is doing well. Judah [92] married a 
Harvey, lived several years near my grandfather, and was a good blacksmith. 
He afterwards removed to Wilbraham, Mass. From there he went to Barre, 
Vermont, where w^ere born to him a number of sons and daughters. Judah 
[243] and Israel [244] removed to Ohio, about 20 miles west of Cincinnati. I 
have lately heard that they are doing well. Eeuben, [248] . my uncle's youngest 
son, married a Gale for his wife, went to Irasburg, afterwards removed to Pen- 
field, Orleans Co., N. Y., purchased a large farm, became one of the members 
of the Assembly for said Co., and is doing well. 

Abraham [95] was the youngest son, resided at home with his parents, treat- 
ing them ever with the greatest kindness and respect. They lived to upwards 
of 80 j^ears, and died respected. He married Susannah Beckwith, had three 
sons, Allen, Baruch, and Wolcott, and several daughters. The oldest, named 
Anna, [253], married Eli Matson, who, embarking in the mercantile business, 
became involved, and was obliged to seek a new home, which was chosen at 
Cato, N. Y., on the east side of Lake Ontario, where he resided several years, 
and by the assistance of my uncle purchased 300 acres of land, my uncle at the 
same time purchasing 1100 more. I was there in 1811. Matson was in pros- 
perous circumstances and ' going ahead.' The country, however, was very new. 



SIXTH GENERATION, 213-224. 33 

In 1823 I paid him a visit, when he had become a very wealthy and independent 
farmer, with five or six tenants for assistance. [The 2d copy adds that Abra- 
ham's son Allen was a clothier, Baruch a tanner and currier, and that in 1823 
'' he lived in fine style."] 

IS^ow I will take up the Uncle John family. There were Jabez [227], John 
[232], and Alfred [234], and three girls. Jabez lived at home on the old farm, 
has one son living on the place, the only one when I was there two years ago. 
My Uncle Abraham had one son also living in E. Hadam. John married, went 
to Adams in the northwest part of Massachusetts. His oldest son is a physi- 
cian, [Erastus, 858], gone to the Carolinas; the second a Baptist minister, 
[Aristarchus, 860], now in Michigan Territory; have often heard from him. 
Alfred, another son, went to Whitesborough; from there he moved to Ogden. 
He died three years since. My Uncle Lemuel [90], lived in Millington, had 
several children and a good farm ; in [February, 2d copy,] 1778 died suddenly 
in a fit of apoplexy. His oldest son [Ansel, 235], lived at New Haven, Vermont, 
the rest scattered. Mehitabel [86], married a Warren, [Warner, 2d copy] by 
whom she had four sons and two daughters. 

John [87], married a Church, had several children, and after several moves 
settled in Livonia, State of Kew York ; is a worthy member of society (and 
withal a deacon of the church.) He has a likely familj^, and doing well. Lem- 
uel [89; Samuel, 2d copy], lives at Herkimer, 'H. Y. Israel [88], is a physician 
in Litchfield, N. Y. Anna [83], married a Comstock and settled in Chatham, 
Conn. ; has two sons; Bichardson [84], died in the West Indies in his 21st year ; 
Jabez [85], lived with his father, had two children, one of whom is now judge 
of the court in Middlesex. Lydia [93], married a Griffin, an uncle of President 
Griffin of Williams College, Maryland, 

and further saith not Allen Willey."

1783, Eunice Wade, who d. at Millington, Sept. 7, 1820, aged 
65, by the ch. rec, while her gravestone says 6Q. 

He d. at M. " on Saturday the third day of March [1821] in the morning be- 
fore sunrise," as appears by a letter from his son Eufus to his brother Ethan, 
of Lebanon, Aslitabula Co., Ohio, dated at E. H., June 15, 1821, aged 65; but it 
appears that he had previously written March 7, and was anxious to learn 
whether that letter had been received. He mentions his father's will, of which 
he was executor, and says that by it he was directed to pay Ethan one hundred 
and fifty dollars, in three annual instalments. " He has gave his gun and one 
bed to you, [hiatus,] that I must give you his grate coat, [hiatus,] and he di- 
rected me to pay Ursula fifty in one year from his Deceas * * Selina Chapman 
keeps hous for me." He gives the following marriages and deaths: "Mr. 
Alfred Capman to Miss Mary Willey ; Mr. Elijah Capman to Miss Patsy Wood ; 
Mr. Thomas Eothburn to Miss Ann Ingram of Lyme; last of all old Mr. Wm. 
Burke to Miss Olive Arnold; died last December Mr. GurdonKay [hiatus] Juu. 
wife aged 27. Mr. George Cone died in May [hiatus.] " 

He says the Probate Court has appointed the term of six months from the 
22d of March, 1821, for the creditors of Jabez Willey to exhibit their claims to 
him as executor. The estate was distributed, Dec. 12, 1821, between Ethan, 
Pufus, and Ursula Dodge, each receiving $18.20. Calvin Dodge, of South New 
Lyme, Ohio, to whom I am indebted for this and the following letter, is in pos- 
session of the gun above referred to and of the horn belonging to it, which has 
cut on it: "Jabez Willey horn made at Fort Trumbull, Febw'y ye 1777, in de- 
fence of Liberty." Around the inscription is a good deal of ornamental work. 
The following letter of Jabez Willey is copied in its original spelling and punc- 
tuation : 

" East H add am May the 4th 1818

Mrs. Ward, [1033,] in a letter written in 1884, says of this family : " Father's 
brother John married Susan Rogers, proud as a peacock, sister to the celebrated 
Dr. Rogers of New York city. He had a nephew that lived in Ogden, poor as 
he could be. After father's brother John married he went to live in the town 
of Adams in Massachusetts. Kow as to Uncle John's family there were three 
sons, four daughters. Susan, [861] the eldest, was courted by Billings Rich- 
mond. Her father didn't like him very well, sent her to Connecticut for six 
months, thinking she might forget him and pick up some other chap. She was 
true to Mr. Richmond, came home and married him. I never saw Rheum. 
Elivia [902], married a man by name Mark Salmon, lived in Bloomtield, N. Y. 
Ann [919], was married to Mr. Johnson. Henry Willey [857], married Lois 
Harrison, a niece of President Harrison. Aristarchus [860], had a good deal 
of the Rogers blood in him; he was glad to lay stonewall to get money to edu- 
cate himself. He was a Baptist minister. Henry Willey, Esq., died in Bliss- 
fleld, Mich, liv (sic) beside himself and wife, two [sons] and four daughters. 
George left a wife and one child. Cornelia [1605], left a husband, his name 
was Sackett, a very handsome man." Mrs. Strong says she was well acquainted 
with Henry Willey, and that he had three sons and two daughters, all of whom 
died young, and that he and his wife died comparatively young; that he had a 
woolen factory in Churchville, N. Y., and that his wife became deranged and 
went crazy on the subject of religion.

the age of 78, lacking one month.'' Mrs. Ward writes that while in Westmore- 
land "he lost all his property by just writing his name, even to the old grind- 
stone, which left him very poor, and his children took cotton to pick from 
Whitestown factory." Mrs. Strong writes : " My father was a farmer, he and 
mother very industrious, hard-working people, worthy and respectable, of the 
good old Connecticut sort, strict Sabbath-keepers. My father was a member of 
the Presbj^terian church. My mother was a Baptist in sentiment, not a pro-

Gen. Eli, s. of William and Eunice (Skinner) Matson, who was 
b. inHL., Feb. 11, 1768. 

His ancestors emigrated from Lancashire, England, to N. E., and his grand- 
father Thomas Matson was of Boston in 1630. He was a magistrate and sur- 
veyor of land in E. H., and perhaps a partner in business with his father, who 
failed in consequence of the capture of his vessels by the French. He removed 
to Cato, now Ira, N. Y., in 1805, where he purchased a farm on which he re- 
sided till his death, and which remained in the possession of his descendants till 
its sale in 1886. He was visited in 1811 by Allen Willey [212], who w^rites that 
he was " in prosperous circumstances and go-ahead^-'' and again in 1823, when 
" he had become a very wealthy farmer, with 5 or 6 tenants for assistance." 
He d. in Cato, Dec. 6, 1849, and she d. June 28, 1841. 

Children — Matson. 

254 I. Roderick,'^ b. at E. H., June 16, 1792; m. at Sherburne, X. Y., Sept. 
17, 1815, Catherine Wells, w^ho was b. at Stratford, Conn., Nov. 10, 1792, and 
who d. at Utica, Mo., Jan. 19, 1854. He was a merchant at Port Byron, N. Y., 
and the first postmaster there; removed to Utica, N. Y., and in 1834 to Mis- 
souri, naming the place of his settlement Utica, and was postmaster, and d. 
there Dec. 31, 1873. Their ch. were b. at Port Byron. 

A notice of him appeared in the Chillicothe, Mo., Constitution, which says : 
"• With the close of the old year passed away one of the pioneers of the Grand 
Eiver Valley, who was one of the most honorable and upright gentlemen that 
have ever lived in our country. Col. Matson came to this country nearly 
forty years ago, and settled where the present flourishing town of Utica now 
stands, which town he founded and named in honor of his old home in the 
East, and which for a time disputed with Chillicothe for the location of the 
county seat. During his long residence in our countj^ Col. Matson has been 
recognized as a gentleman whose character was above reproach, as a citizen 
of enterprise and public spirit, as a Christian gentleman whose conduct and 
daily walk in all the affairs of this life attested that religion was with him a 
realit}^ He has filled a number of important public stations, and discharged 
the duties of each with scrupulous fidelity. For a number of years he was 
public administrator of this county, and no man ever more carefully and scru- 
pulously guarded the rights of the widow and the fatherless. At a meeting 
of the friends of law and order, in Chillicothe, called by Col. Matson and 
others, Aug. 5, 1863, ' to protest against and put down the scoundrelism that 
was being perpetrated in the name of Loyalty,' he was chosen chairman, and 
the sequel proved that he was the right man in the right place. A mob with 



40 SIXTH GENERATION, 255-268. 

revolvers and other weapons tried to break up the meeting ; for a few minutes 
it seemed as though blood would be shed ; but he stood up and denounced 
and defied the ruffians, and told them that the friends of law and order would 
put them down at all hazards. Men took fresh courage and rallied around 
the old hero, and the mob's courage soon oozed out, and they sneaked away; 
and from that day to the close of the struggle the people of Livingston 
County enjoyed a good degree of social peace and order."

2. Cora Adele,^ b. Jan. 7, 1859; lives with her father. Miss Matson 
has had but limited advantages of education, but she is a poet of more 
than ordinary ability, displaying in her productions a strong love of na- 
ture, and domestic aifections. Some of her songs have been set to music 
by F. K. Jones, and published by Ditson & Co., of Boston, Mass. We 
select the following poem, not as the best, but as all that space allows : 

THE HOME AVHERE I WAS BORN. 



If my hand were but an artist's 
I would paint for you this scene, 

Those two bams, that low, red farm-house. 
And the deep old well between. 

But would add the charm and brightness 

That its beauty wore for me, 
When I thought the whole world bounded 

By the woods my eyes could see. 

When forgetf ulness would find me 

AVith the sunset's latest rays, 
And the locust in the door-yard 

Bloomed for months, instead of days. 



When my childhood's chosen play-mate 
Was the brother of my heart. 

And 'twas joy to be together. 
And a grief to be apart. 

Then the morning let no shadows 
Linger from the darkest night, 

And a day could hold no tangle 
That the next would not bring right. 

Then our mother bent above us 
With her brown hair's rippling sheen, 

And the year was always May -time. 
And the woods were always green.

in 1810, and was a member of that body for twenty-one sessions, the last of 
which was in 1843, after which he retired from public business. '•'• He was quite 
popular with the masses, and for more than a quarter of a century exercised an 
influence in the town of Ellington almost without control. He was very early 
appointed a Justice of the Peace, which office he held till he was disqualified by 
r^gg^ * * * * jjg made a most excellent judge." A biography of him was 
given in the Hist, of Tolland Co., by Loren P. Waldo, published in a newspai^er

postmaster from 1806 to 1808, when he removed to Tolland, and was there post- 
master from 1818 to 1825, and was six times elected to the General Assembly, 
and twice to the State Senate. He was an unsuccessful candidate for Congress 
in 1820, being defeated because he had, in 1819, allowed his name on a union 
ticket of Federalists and Democrats for State Senators, he being a Democrat. In 

1824 he was a candidate for the United States Senate, but was defeated; but in 

1825 he was elected to that body, and served six years, till 1831, when he re- 
turned to the practice of his profession, but did not regain his former standing. 
In 1834 he returned to Strafford, where he d. Aug. 23, 1858. " He was a man of 
more than ordinary intellect, and his attainments as a lawyer were very fair. 
At one time he stood at the head of the bar in Tolland County. * * sfs jj^ 
always entered into the cause of his client with his whole heart ; indeed, he 
often became so identified with his client as to make success a matter of per- 
sonal feeling ; and he sometimes lost sight of the true interests of his client in 
his zeal to defend the claims he set up. At the close of his life the bar of Tol- 
land County noticed his memory by appropriate resolutions." See Judge Wal- 
do's Hist, of Tolland, pp. 105-108, Poore's Congressional Directory, and Lan- 
man's Biog. Annals.

Elizabeth, dau. of James and Sophia (Wilkes) Leslie, who d. July 
14, 1886, aged 77, at the residence of her son, John Wesley 
Willey, in Lawrence, Kansas. 

The following obituary of her appeared in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat of 
the same date : " She was the wife of John W. Willey, and together they came 
• to Kansas in 1857. Mr. Willey was one of the pioneer Methodist preachers. 
He built on the Wakamsa, near Blue Mound, a mill, which was probably the 
lirst in the country. He died about four years ago, and since then Mrs. Willey 
has resided on her farm near Blue Mound, with her son. She leaves nine chil- 
dren, who reside in Kansas, Missouri, Oregon, and Washington Territory." 

John Wesley was licensed as a Methodist preacher in 1838, in Clark Co., Ind. 
In 1857 he removed to Kansas, taking a saw-mill with him, and settled near Blue 
Mound, Douglas Co. He was chaplain of a Kansas regiment during Price's 
raid. He was a life-long and devoted Methodist, and a preacher for 40 years, 
resigning a short time before his death, which occurred Sept. 4, 1881, as the 
result of injuries occasioned by being thrown from his carriage while returning 
from church. " He was," says a notice of him by G. S. Dearborn, of Vineland, 
Kansas, " highly esteemed as a citizen, and took an active part in everything 
tending to improve society. Industrious, prudent, and discreet in his affairs, he 
planned well for his family and the church. * * * 'pjie text to be used at

Children of DARIUS « [166] and Mary (Pulsifer) Willey. 

701 I. ISAAC,^ b. in C, Sept. 8, 1793 ; graduated at Dart- [ 1433 
mouth College, N. H., in 1822, and was ordained in Rochester, 
N. H., m 1826; m. May 11, 1826, Sarah Flint N^edham, of 
Lynniield, Mass., who d. Feb. 20, 1848; (2d) July 3, 1849, 
Martha, dan. of John and Polly (Wilson) Steele, of Peterboro', 
N. H. 

In 1845 he became agent of the N. H. Home Missionary Society, and removed 
to Pembroke, N. H., and in 1837 to GofFstown, N. H. After a ministry of 17 
years there, he became agent for N. H. of the Am. Bible Society, and wrote its 
reports for 26 years. He delivered the historical address at the Campton Cen- 
tennial, Sept. 12, 1867 ; wrote historical sketches of the churches in Campton 
and Pembroke, and a history of the N. H. Bible Society. In 1865 he returned 
to Pembroke and bought a small farm, which he " proposed to cultivate in old 
age," and d. there Oct. 25, 1883, aged 90. In a sketch of his mother's side of 
the family, dated Sept. 1882, he saj's : '' Our grandfather Joseph Pulsifer, b. in 
1744, was a native of Ipswich, Mass. We have little more of his early history 
than that he was religiously trained, and that he learned the trade of a cabinet- 
maker. * * * Grandmother was from Newburyport, brought up in city 
habits and manners, yet she at 18, in 1770, accompanied her husband an hundred 
miles on horseback, (never before on a horse,) into the wilderness. Her orig- 
inal name was Mary Brown. One of her sisters became the wife of the Eev. 
Noah Worcester. This family of Brown came from the ministry of Eev. Mi'. 
Parsons, who was regarded as one of the new lights in the great awakening of 
1770. He was in full sympathy with Mr. Whitefleld, under whose pulpit he 
was buried. Our grandmother, though she never thought fit to belong to the 
church, 3"et lived a religious life. Her family carefully kept the Sabbath and 
attended public worship. They were required daily to read the Bible. The 
family was brought up to great industry, and were never allowed to neglect 
their religious duties. They lived remote from others, and spent their evenings 
and leisure time in reading. There was in the place a small library, from which 
they drew books which were well read. The result was a family of 11 children 
— one died in infancy — four sons and six daughters, of large and vigorous 
frames, and without schools or question they were the most intelligent and 
best educated family in town, and all, it was hoped, became the subjects of the 
kingdom of our Lord ! None of them became rich, but all were provided for 
in an independent position, and bore their proportion in the burdens of society. 
The}^ were everywhere the most influential. Such were the circumstances in 
w^hich our mother, the oldest daughter in their family, came forward in life. 
She brought the influence of her mother's training into her own family. She 
did not feel in earl}^ life that she had had a change of heart, which she regarded 
as necessary. Yet her instructions were safe for children to follow. The old- 
est members of the family who yet live will remember how earnest she was in 
teaching the Catechism, the Ten Commandments, and other portions of the 
Bible, and many of Watts' hymns. Our family were kept in the house of God 
on the Sabbath, and were made familiar with His word. Such was the family

before the revival in 1815. Let every descendant in this family line trace back 
the good influence M^hich we have felt from our ancestry to our mother, our 
grandmother, and our great-grandmother ; to the great awakening 150 years 
ago ; to the preaching of Whitefield and other good men who worked with him. 
This influence has been sustained through three generations by God's word, 
accompanied as it has been by His spirit." [See Willey Mem. for this and other 
members of the family; Campt. Cent.; Laurence Hist, of N. H. churches, pp.

suffering as an invalid for a number of years, she manifested the meekness, pa- 
tience and cheerfulness, becoming one whose hope and treasure were in heaven. 
She passed away peacefully, and her memory will be cherished in the hearts of 
a large circle of friends, and her example will long have its influence upon those 
who knew and loved her best. She was a devoted mother and kindly neighbor, 
and dispensed with a liberal hand the means which God gave her, to glorify 
the Master who has called her to her reward. Her remains were brought from

Dodge, in her twenty-fourth year. For some years past and at the time of 
her death, as deputy recorder of this county, she was well known not only 
for the beauty and accuracy of her work on the official records, but for her 
prompt, careful, and lady-like attention to the duties of the office ; and to 
those who knew her personally, she was endeared by her beautiful and 
noble character, and that native fineness of mind, improved by careful cul- 
ture, which led her, while not neglecting the solid attainments of general 
scholarship, to give her attention particularly to the fine arts. With what 
leisure she was enabled to give the subject, she has made great progress in 
a systematic course of study, embracing the whole field of drawing, paint- 
ing, and sculpture ; but she was more than an art student. Though always 
a student, she was already an artist, and her work attests that her genius 
was of the highest order. To her relatives, and especially to her grief- 
stricken mother, who was by reason of Illness unable even to see Emma 
during her sickness, her numerous friends, themselves mourners, unite in 
extending their sympathy."

Our father now slumbers in peace, '* Oh, rise up and cheer your sad heart — 

In the hushed and deep shadowy grave; Rouse, shake off your spirit's deep gloom ; 

His troubles and trials now cease. We yet shall meet, never to part, 

Nought more shall his spirit e'er crave. In those mansions where all have a room ! 

Never more will his dear, vanished forin, •' My children, ye sistei's in love. 

Wander through the bi'oad city's wild hum; Weep not, for your father is blest; 

Never more his sad, feeble steps rove Forget not, but onward and move 

On their errands of kindness and love. On your journey — then meet him in rest." 

Never more will his mild, loving eyes Oh ! when we look back on the past, 
Rest on us, his mourners, left here; And think on those scenes long since fled; 

Metliiuks his sweet spirit now sighs. Of his love-beaming eyes to the last, 
" Weep not for me, loved one, so dear. Whilst weeping we clung round his bed — 

" And thou, too, dear partner in all Can we wish all his sorrows renewed, 

My joys and cares while on earth. His dear footsteps again struggling on, 

Wipe your eyes, and still struggle on. Through life's darksome and briery road 

By your lonely and desolate hearth : Of pain and despair, all forlorn ? 

" This life is at best but a span, Ah no, let such selfishness fly 
All its fleeting scenes vanish away ; Away from our hearts, which are blest 

The beginning, fli'st point of a plan With assurance in yon smiling sky. 
Of an endless, eternal bright day! We shall join his bright spirit in rest. 

Then let us entwine round his tomb 

The Cedar, the Laurel and Pine ; 
Oh ! may such sweet Evergreens bloom, 

With their boughs breezy waving o'er mine !

He removed to Troy, N. Y., and thence to E. B., and d. at the 
residence of his son John in Lockport, N. Y., May 21 or 22, 
1869, and was buried at E. B. He served a short time in the war

860 IV. ARISTARCHUS,' b. as above, in Nov. 1793. A [ 1656 
Baptist minister, who educated himself by his own exertions. 

He was the 3d settled pastor of the Bap. ch. in Wheatland, N. Y. Removing 
to Michigan, he preached in several parishes, principally in Oakland Co. He 
m. in 1836 Miss Mariah McGee, of Xew York, a grand-daughter of Gen. Holt of 

the Revolutionary army, who survives him, and who m. (2d) Keyes, of 

Detroit, Mich. His health failing, he removed to an estate he owned in Mt. 
Pleasant, Oakland Co., Mich., where he d. Jan. 5, 1850. His age, on his tomb- 
stone, is said to be 52, but this is an error, as his sister, in the letter quoted from 
below, says he was next older than herself. A letter from his sister Susan, 
dated Jan. 30, 1850, says of his last hours : " On the day he died, which was 4 
o'clock in the afternoon, his mother-in-law, standing over him and thinking him 
unconscious, said to him, ' Brother W., I think you are dying.' He answered 
and said, ' God's will be done.' He made signs to be assisted up, and, being 
assisted, stood up, but being too feeble to stand sat on the bedside and addressed 
all that were in the house, (which was not a few,) with as mucli composure as 
if entering a pulpit. The subject that lay near his heart was the love of God. 
He trusted in His power and might, bestowed the benediction, was helped back, 
and exj)ired."

ties to the end of life ; and she d. Aug. 3, 1872, aged 76. "She

began the world with slender means, building a log-house in the construction 
of which not a nail was used. In earlier years she used often to say that her 
constant prayer was that she might not outlive her usefulness, and that prayer

dery for some of her children or grandchildren, and there was a pathetic satis- 
faction in seeing her thus employed. Her letters, written without glasses, 
which she never used, were, considering her years, marvels of neatness and 
legibility. She had a deeplj^ religious nature, and no cloud of doubt ever 
seemed to cross the heaven of her perfect faith. She waited patiently for the 
change so dreaded by many, but which for yeai-s was I'egarded by her as a 
happy release. It came at last, and her worn-out fragile frame now lies buried 
by that of her husband, from whom she had been separated during her long-

Mr. Trowbridge is a well known writer in prose and verse. His literary ten- 
dencies developed themselves at an early age, when he contributed to the col- 
umns of a newspaper in Rochester, N. Y., which is near his native place. At 
the age of 19 he went to New York city and wrote for the press there, and in 
1848 to Boston, where he soon became known as a writer of popular tales, under 
the signature " Paul Creyton." After travelling extensively in tliis country, 
he visited Europe in 1855, passing a year chiefly in France and Italy. In 18G5 
he travelled in the Southern States, and made his observations the subject of a 
book, " The South," i^ublished the following year. He has been a copious con- 
tributor to the magazines, and edited " Our Young Folks," in which several of 
his stories for boys first appeared, until it was merged in " St. Nicholas " in 
1873. He now resides in Arlington, Mass., going little into society, but giving 
occasional readings from his own works for social and chai-itable purposes. 
His principal prose writings in fiction, in the order of their publication, are 
Martin Merivale, a story of city life, perhaps embodying some of his own early 
experience, 1854; Neighbor Jackwood, a faithful picture of American rural life, 
written in Paris, which was dramatized and played with success in New York 
and Boston, 1856 ; Ciidjo^s Cave and The Drummer Boy, 1863 ; The Three Scouts, 
1864; Lucy Arlyn, 1866; four stories based on incidents in the civil war; Neigh- 
bors'' Wives, 1867; Coujjon Bonds, and other stories, 1870; FarneWs Folly, 1884. 
A number of his magazine stories for boys, written from 1871 to 1883, have also 
been published in book form. In poetry, The Vagabonds was first published in

the Atlantic Monthly in 1863, republished in an illustrated volume in 1864, and 
again with other poems in 1869. The EmigranVs Story, and other poems, fol- 
lowed in 1874 ; The Book of Gold, and other poems, in 1877; Giaj Vernon, a 
novelette in verse, in " The Masque of Poets," in 1878 ; A Home Idyll, and other 
poems, in 1881. A writer in Scribner's Monthly says of him as a novelist: 
" His characters are all vitally conceived, and hence his page is essentially dra- 
matic, — full of action and the throb of real life, as distinguished from novels 
that are mainly narrative and descriptive. He has unmistakably the genial, 
magnetic heart-nature that is characteristic of the true race of creators. He 
stands on the common level and appeals to the universal heart, and all that he 
suggests or achieves is on the plane and in the line of the march of the great 
body of humanity. One other trait, noteworthy in these days, is his hearty 
good nature, and entire freedom from the contempt, the condescension, the ir- 
reverence and superciliousness that vitiate so much of the work of our younger 
geniuses. There is only charity and good-will in his hearty laugh. He does 
not portray human nature through mere intellectual acuteness and cleverness, 
but creativel.y, through his sympathy'- and hearty affiliation with it, in all its nor- 
mal forms and conditions." Of his poetry, a writer in Harper's Magazine for 
Jan. 1882, says : " There are few among our living American poets (none, per- 
haps, save Longfellow and Whittier,) who are more perfect masters than he of 
the simple cadences and musical harmonies of our English verse, or who unfold 
a story with more x)ersuasive art."

1030 III. OGDEN MOSELEY,^ b. in E. H., July 20, [1658 
1793. A lawyer. 

He graduated at Hamilton College, N. Y., 1816. Before me is his graduation 
thesis, written in Latin. He educated himself by his own exertions, and was 
accustomed to say that he was not indebted to any person a cent for his educa- 
tion. Soon after graduating he made a journey to the West, as far as St. Louis, 
and returned much disgusted with the country as he saw it. On his return he 
studied law, and was admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of N'ew York 
after his marriage, and settled in Geneseo, N. Y. He m. March 5, 1823, Abigail 
Belden, dau. of Elisha and Euth (Hurlburt) Chamberlain, of Dalton, Mass., 
who was b. there Sept. 9, 1798, and d. in G., Aug. 3, 1824; (2d) May 5, 1825, 
Grace Maria, dau. of John and Grace (Howard) Stanley, of G., who was b. Ap. 
3, 1806. She removed to Iowa in 1855, and to California in 1876, where she lives 
in Gilroy with her children. He d. in G., Jan. 30, 1849, aged 56. He was a man 
of more than ordinarj'' ability. Not possessing the gift of eloquence, he did not 
shine as an advocate at the bar; but for knowledge of the law and soundness in 
counsel he was the equal of his brethren in the profession, and was considered 
'^ the end of the law " in his county. Life-long ill health, caused by early ap- 
plication to study, a want of ambition, and perhaps a very strict conscientious- 
ness, prevented his attaining the position in professional and public life to which 
his tjilents would have entitled him. The religious element was strong in him. 
He w^as a member of the 1st Presbyterian ch. in G., a regular attendant on its 
services, and a strict observer of the Sabbath. For a long series of years he

had family worship every morning, at which a chapter of the Bible was read, 
each of the children, as they grew old enough, reading a verse in turn; in 
this way the Bible was read through more than once before the separation of 
the family ; and the children were required to commit to memory passages from 
it, enjoining moral duties. But there is reason to believe that he modified the 
rigor of his doctrinal belief before he died, although he was not disposed to 
converse on the subject. His family discipline was strict, and sometimes severe. 
He never conversed with his children about the incidents of his early life, but 
he had an earnest desire for their welfare, and gave them the best education his 
means would afford ; and they entertain a sincere respect for his memory, mixed 
with a regret that there had not been more freedom and confidence in their mu- 
tual intercourse. With all his external seriousness he had a large share of wit 
and humor, and could turn a bit of verse neatly upon occasion. He was for 
many years Clerk of the Board of Supervisors of Livingston County, and for a 
quarter of a century w^as every four years chosen a Justice of the Peace of the 
town of Geneseo. In 1837, while on a journey East for his health, he visited his 
native town, and made some memoranda concerning the history of the family. 

[Abigail Belden Chamberlain was descended from Henry Chamberlain, who 
came to N. E. in 1638, and was of Hinghara, Mass., in 1674, and had w. Jane, 
and five eh., of whom William, the 2d, was of Hadley, Mass., and m. at Hatfield, 
Mass., June 6 or 8, 1688, Mercy Dickinson. They removed to Colchester, Conn. 
He had ten ch., of whom John, the youngest, who probably m. a dau. of Eben- 
ezer Day, had s. John who settled in Pittsfield, Mass., and his s. Elihu, who m. 
Ruth Hurlburt, was of Dalton, Mass., and the father of Abigail B. 

From records in the possession of the family of Grace Maria Stanley, it ap- 
pears that Nathaniel Howard, by will dated in 1700, and by an alteration of the 
same dated at Salem, Mass., Dec. 17, 1705, gave lands in Beverly, Mass., to his 
s. Stephen, which were given to him by his father Nicholas Howard, of Salem 
or Beverly, who d. before 1688. This may have been the Nicholas Howard 
mentioned by Savage as of Salem in 1643, and probably removed to Boston, and 
by w. Elizabeth had ch. Richard, b. in 1665, Rebecca and John. Ten ch. of the 
above Nathaniel were mentioned in his will, one of w^hom, Stephen, says that 
his father d. Dec. 19, 1720, and his mother Elizabeth, Ap. 17, 1730. Her maiden 
name was probably Hartshorn, as he says: ^'Father Hartshorn d. Oct. 16, 
1787, aged 88 years, if he had lived till the 6th of May." Stephen resided in 
Mansfield, Windham Co., Conn., and went to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, to settle, 
after the neutral French were expelled, and d. there Feb. 23, 1762, in his 79th 
year. He had 7 ch., of whom the 3d, Nathaniel, was b. Dec. 19, 1718. He lived 
successively in Conn., Westfield, Mass., and Stephentown, N. Y., where he d. 
Oct. 20, 1777, and his w. Martha in Sept. 1800, aged 76. They had 11 ch., of 
whom Jonathan, the 8th, w^as b. Dec. 26, 1753, " old style," and had w. Mary, 
dau. of Job Gardner, of Kingston, R. I.. He d. at Clarendon, Orleans Co., N. 
Y., Oct. 9, 1828, and she d. there Aug. 27, 1830, aged 74 years, 2 months, and 4 
days. He was at the battle of Saratoga, and helped carry Gen. Arnold from 
the field when he was wounded at the battle of Stillwater. He had 9 ch., all b. 
in Stephentown, of whom the 4th, Stephen, b. July 28, 1747, m. Ap. 6, 1775, 
Grace Grant, b. March 22, 1750, d. Oct. 21, 1781, and (2d) Oct. 24, 1784, Esther 
Lyman, b. July 14, 1750. By his 1st w. he had 5 ch., of whom Grace, the 
youngest, b. Oct. 2, 1781, m. John Stanley, and was the mother of Grace Maria

at an advanced age at the home of their son Isaac, Brighton, Mich. John Stan- 
\ey, who d. in Franklin, Conn., is called the s. of Charles Stanley, of Tolland 
and Elsington, Conn. I do not find this family in Warren's History of the 
Stanley Families of America, Portland, 1887. But it seems probable that the 
immediate ancestors of Grace Maria Stanley were of New Hampshire, and per- 
haps connected with the Connecticut stock. 

Mr. and Mrs. John Winthrop, Jr., "Eliz. the wife of Samuel Lothrop, and 
Johanna, the wife of Isaac Willey, who had removed to the plantation at Pe- 
kott," were included in a letter of recommendation from the Jfirst ch. in Boston 
to the ch. at Seabroke Fort, (Saybrook) dated July 23, 1650. Proc. Mass. Hist.

uncle, John AV. Willey, and was admitted to the bar in 1841. 

He gave much attention to art and literature, on subjects connected with 
which he was a favorite lecturei*, and to the organization of the schools of the 
city, of which he was for several years Superintendent. His reports were val- 
uable, and greatlj^ influenced the formation of the school systems in many of 
the cities of the West. It was said of him that "his mind is unusually well 
balanced, and he sees the relative value of knowledge better than any man I 
ever saw. * * * Broader and more philosophical notions of education for 
the million especially characterized our School Board while he was Secretary 
eight or ten j-eai's.'' He was appointed b}' President Grant U. S. Dist. Atty. 
for the Northern Dist. of Ohio, and reappointed on his reelection. At times he 
was President of the Law Library Association, and of the Cleveland Homoeo- 
pathic Association. He was twice married, his 2d wife being Julia, dau. of 
John C. Vaughn, of C, who survived him. He had no children, and d., after a

dresses on his life and character were made by his associates, and suitable res- 
olutions were adopted. A notice of him appeared in the Cleveland Leader of 
Dec. 31, 1884, and a biography in Tract 67 of the Western Eeserve Historical 
Society, Cleveland, 1886. 

1562 V. HENRY,^ b. Jan. 4, 1823 ; lives in Ravinia, 111. 

1563 YI. SAMUEL,^ b. in Boston ab. 1827 or 1828 ; at his [ 1998 
father's death he removed to Cleveland. 

He graduated at the Cleveland Med. Coll. in 1849, and practiced in the State 
Lunatic Asj^lum in C. as Junior and Senior Assistant two years and a half. In 
1852 he removed to St. Paul, Minn., where in 1854 he had experience in the 
treatment of cholera cases. In 1825 he m. Mary A., dau. of .John E. Irvine, of 
St. Paul. In 1862 he was appointed Pension Surgeon and Medical Referee of 
Minn. In 1869 was chosen President of the Minn. State Med. Society, and re- 
elected in 1870, and in the latter year a Vice-President of the Am. Med. Associ- 
ation. He gave up practice in 1865, and removed to Bayfield, Wis., in 1871, 
where he died in Nov. 1872, having passed the previous winter in l^ew Orleans. 
A biography of him was published in the Northwestern Medical and Surgical 
Journal at St. Paul, dated July, 1871, which says : "To him the profession of St. 
Paul and of the State owe many things : among them the doing away of physi- 
cians' compounding their own prescriptions ; the establishing of regular office 
hours ; and the system of putting bills in the hands of a regular collector. 
During his term of office in the Ohio Lunatic Asylum he had considerable 
gynaecological experience, but after his removal to Minn, he avoided that 
branch till about 1858 it began absolutely to force itself upon him. With char- 
acteristic energy he now devoted himself to the study of suffering woman, and 
hundreds of grateful patients will testify to the care, tact and success with 
which he learned to treat her diseases."
